Zoropsis new pet - Zoropsis spinimana

Zoropsis new pet - Zoropsis spinimana
San Jose , Santa Clara County, California, USA
April 4, 2020
Size: 2 inches
This big hairy spider was underneath a pile of pillows in our living room! Scared the crap out of me at first... thought wolf spider and looked up the markings. It’s pretty cool, and not a wolf! Wondered if this little rascal is female or male. And possible age? Also, we decided to keep it in a habitat as a pet for now. Any info as to how to keep it happy as a pet would be appreciated. Thank
You!

In these images, the mother has prepared the area where she will lay her eggs, but has not laid eggs yet. For an example of the actual egg sac, see the top of this photo: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Zoropsis_spinimana#/media/File:Zoropsidae_-_Zoropsis_spinimana.JPG
